The rise of wellness tourism has brought awareness to the benefits of including healthy eating, yoga, meditation and spa treatments in travel plans.

“The ancient Greeks did it. So did the ancient and not-so-ancient Romans, Japanese, and Chinese. Heck, even some of the founding fathers of the United States did it too. But despite its illustrious past, the idea of taking the waters has never really caught on in the United States, until now. Hot springs could be on the verge of a major wellness moment.”
